Pelican Daughters - Fishbones And Wishbones
Between 1986 and 1988, using Portastudio technology, the Pelican Daughters were birthed with a collection of atmospheric and moody tracks at odds with the popular culture around them, but definitely pointing to the future. Some of those tracks were released on cassette in 1988 on the Cosmic Conspiracy Productions label and was then picked up by Kim Cascone's Silent Records for release on CD in 1991 with added tracks - the format found here. Long out of print and almost impossible to find, 4-4-2 Music is proud to put the album back into circulation - this time completely free and in .wav format.

Hidden Ambient Dub jewel...
I first encountered this album on CD at radio station KFJC in Los Altos Hills, California (about 40 minutes South of San Francisco) back in 1993, or so. I loved the dissonant, floating quality of these dub-informed tracks: 2 of my absolute favorites being 'The Haywain' and 'Rockaby'; the latter track sounding like David Lynch smoking his final pipe of opium while being fanned with a palm frond in a remote Asian temple garden flooded with sunlight as a beatifically smiling eunuch cello player intones hypnotic glissandi to guide you through the perilous labyrinth that is a creeping and inexorable Bardo.
Highly recommended !!!
